1:34 pm
tested every year and highly regulated bodily the e.p.a. and furthermore the e pc is work to go install -- throughout the city and we are starting to see some major improvements the city has installed 11 water bottle filling stations to date and there are important reasons to promote tap water it's better for the environment is it saves residents money and cuts down on the sugary consumption of beverages as well. and i also want to invite residents that i'm hold be coffee hours on ole gai ass cafe on the outer rich mopped and then my evening hours have a bear with me at steins on clement street and eight avenue near the old colosseum theater

1:36 pm
hours and so outside land is only a small portion of the entire golden gate park and i imagine that the park has it's own process for lock @out and supervising outside events as they look forward to the progresses on this staging. and the park is not over allowing and or denying applications it's similarly providing informational hearing i believe when we decide to use a proposition of our park a public venue the public should be able to express their concerns or may have ideas about how events can be samed and setup and this will allow that to happen and we also have at times like we did for the detour event, closuresures of streets and we also want to
1:37 pm
have for whatever park events include any street colorsures that it has got -- it will be part of any hearing commission. and so as we move forward with this ordinance in place that we will have a public process to hear about large scale hearing process.. >> supervisor kim requested to be rereferred. >> thank you i also want to end this meeting in the memory of sergeant -- at the age of 44 passed away of a sudden heart attack and he has been with the fraction police station with the last 44 years and he started why 1998 and at the southern station and baby station ask is also a former army range gear injury

schematic that shows how the grouting tubes will be installed with the anticipated grout that will help counteract any proposed building movement if it was to occur this is a grouting away ray for the under cropping of the existing tubes at noter and market. this is the proposed grotting away next to the proposed chinatown station, similar grouting a away ray for the you know street market station, and proposed build protection for the -- station and this represented three of the repeatedly acquired agreements that we have received

1:48 pm
city is there my city do care yeah .... >> do any other members of public wish to speak or sing with regards to these resolutions? all right seeing none, at this time, we will hear from property owners either of whom if you wish to take up to 15 minutes with reds louis pertaining to their property let me see if their any property owners here who wish to speak on behalf of their property and if you can identify your name and the property you are representing. >> my name is mark and i represent the owners of one 12 stock ton street and 212 strobing ton street. i request that the board deny the resolutions at least with respect to these two properties resolutions one nine one 090 and
1:49 pm
one nine one 094 and pertaining to one two stock ton stories and two one two stock stonn stories this is the apple flagship store and joule rear stores and tenants if the board doesn't grant or pass the resolution, i would at least ask the board postpone consideration until early next year we are presently negotiating with the city to resolve our open issues on proposed license agreements through negotiations unfortunately we have not received responses back from the city on responses we provided two year ago and it there is no you remembercy for the city to pass the resolution today and as
1:50 pm
the resolution purport temporary construction license and is in fact exhibit a describe the property without anytime limits make thus makes these resolutions in incripple continent easiment and is rather than public construction license and is this is problematic and has selflegal application implications that is we have identified to the board and i'm happy to provide copies of though today to have them filed with the clerk and i'll just briefly hilled four of those implications today in a case those resolutions invalid. #1. the licenses as described in the resolutions again this is exhibit a to the resolutions included in the agenda packets provided to the board members, the license does not adequately describe the property with sufficient detail because there are no descriptions of anytime limitations as to when the purported license access could start or when it would need to
1:51 pm
conclude and again this is easements not temporary license and is by not describing anytime licks limitations the licenses violate code of civil procedure. second, the reds louises seek to condemn property without having a valid offer been made and the license agreement that the city provided in connection with it's offer didn't have time recollections those restrictions were not perfect but better than no longer. by contrast the licensed text contained in the resolutions a to the resolutions have no time limits at all by not having made a valid offer, the purported offer and therefore the resolutions are not valid, this is a violation of government code serks
1:52 pm
section 7.62. and third violation of the license as contrasted with what was proposed in the license agreement viewedded to the property owners are not planned in a manner that reflects the greatest public good and the least private injury and without any kind of time limits the licensed in the resolution purport to be perpetual easiment and is thews a far broader right than what is required by this project we know this because the licenses that were offered to us, did have time limit and is so we know that the city that the agency does not require perpetual easements and again by providing an offer that excuse me by presenting resolutions that do not seek to accommodate the greatest public good and least private injury the
1:53 pm
resolutions are not valid and the could a kriivel code of civil procedure precludes the board from passing any kind of resolution based on sequentially invalid license that is have been set for the in the exhibit a resolution and finally, the city has failed to offer just compensation. the appraisal that was submitted to the property owners with respect to these two properties those appraisals are based on temp license not perpetual easiment and is therefore inadequate and in addition, the appraisal did not adequately consider the impact on a property concern severance damages that would occurring temporarily during construction work and then reduced access and these are set forth in the snags we have
1:54 pm
provide and had so i therefore ask the board deny these resolutions or at a minimum reiterate there is no urgency in passing these resolutions today, you are still waiting the city's comments on response to comments providedbak back in okay of this year we are happy to negotiate with the city but we cannot do it on our own we require cooperation from the city in order to reach an agreement and meanwhile while the city is seeking to track this with condemnation proceedings and no response in terms of license notions and this is going to lead to unnecessary ependiture and is litigating a condemnation action when in fact all of this can be resolved through an agreement and the city has sent in a client to install some of
1:55 pm
the monitoring equipment that is covered by the license agreement and is we are looking to avoid any kind of dispute with the city over these issues and we would rather resolve these issues through agreement and negotiations and the issues that separate us in terms of reaching an agreement with not such that they cannot be overcome we should be able to resolve these issues but again we require at least some minimum level of womb cooperation from the city thank you. >> thank you let me ask if there are any other representatives of propertieners that are sog to the discussion today. okay seeing none, let me ask if there are members of the public that oppose any or all of the resolutions today that wish to speak in public comment? all right seeing none, let me call back the s fm ta you shall
1:56 pm
have 15 minutes if you wish to provide a rebuttal to the property owner. >> we would continue to work with the apple store and bull gare location [spelling?] we have beenwork wing them diligently since may of 2012 and the you remembercy of acquiring these licenses is that the installation will be in june of next year and these licenses will allow they are temporary in nature and they will allow us to allow preventive measures that allows the city to protect existing buildings and once we acquire the license we will be
1:57 pm
able to install the monitoring equipment immediately and use both the monitoring equipment and grouting tubes until the end of construction which, is anticipatedded in december of 2018. thank you. >> thank you. supervisor wiener i think has a question for you. yeah could you provide a more specific response to the gentlemen who just disputed in terms of the property that i guess there was not a response to the letter that ethey sent and i'm just wondering if m ta could respondent to that particular set of concerns. >> well, we have been working we closely with the building owner and, we will continue to do so to reach agreement and some of the issues that were raised dealt with the description of the easement i
1:58 pm
believe. the building owner believes it's more of a prescriptive long term easement while the city's is more temporary in nature and will only be used as a preventive measure in terms of the valid offer that was made the government code offer that was made in may of 2012, that was based on an approved government offer for the value of the temporary construction license we strive to acquire all of the licenses without any cost of litigation and we welcome and we have staff willing to sit down with the owner immediately to discuss any differences or issues and we have two staff members dedicated full-time for
1:59 pm
this effort and they are available immediately to work with the owner. >> have they already been meeting with that owner. yes, they have. >> any additional questions colleagues to any of the parties involved? okay at this time, is this set of hearings has been held and is closed and item 27 is filed and colleagues as was just presented by the mta the m ta has reached agreement with the property owners corresponding to stock ton street and what i would like to do first is entertain a motion to table the items related to those properties items 26, 28 and 27 and so without objection those items will be tabled and now, we
